Postcard Swap: NEVADA 16 of 50

I Love Las Vegas, its so much fun! Not to mention, Hubby and I were married there! I have been there 4 times and cant wait to go again someday after we get back to the Mainland!

Nevada Fun Facts (written on the back of the postcard):
Hoover Dam is the largest single public works project in the history of the United States, contains 3.25 million cubic yards of concrete, which is enough to pave a two-lane highway from San Francisco to New York.

Nevada is the largest gold-producing state in the nation. It is second in the world behind South Africa.
Nevada has more mountain rages than any other state, with its highest point at the 13,145 foot top of Boundary Peak near the west-central border.
In Death Valley, the Kangaroo Rat can live its entire life without drinking a drop of liquid.
There were 16,067 slots in Nevada in 1960. In 1999 Nevada had 205,726 slot machines, one for every 10 residents.
Las Vegas has more hotel rooms than any other place o earth and the majority of the largest hotels in the world.
Every week a family from a different state sends out their postcards (in theory we should receive 1 card each week). Click the Topic link "Postcard Swap" below to see the other cards we have gotten so far!
